United States Army Garrison Walter Reed Chooses TSOD AdvanTeam for Employee Development Project
March 1, 2009
(Washington, DC) Faced with the multiple challenges of contracting-out services once provided by federal employees, a looming closure under the Base Realignment and Closure Act (BRAC), and an unexpected rash of negative publicity regarding infrastructure maintenance, the U.S. Army Garrison Walter Reed Army Medical Center turned to Training Services On Demand to assess the state of its team dynamics through TSOD’s trademarked AdvanTeam process. AdvanTeam uses a proprietary, scientifically designed interview system to work with organizations’ employees to determine the state of relationships, communication, leadership, morale, and other meaningful issues. TSOD then designs a workshop to enroll employees in engineered solutions to the identified challenges.
“We have to compliment the Garrison leadership for their obvious concern about team development when base closure hovers so close to the horizon,” said Frank Whyte, one of the TSOD facilitators involved in the Walter Reed project. “It would be altogether too easy, at this point, to coast to a stop. We get the strong impression, however, that the Garrison is too committed to caring for wounded warriors to allow interpersonal obstacles to interfere with base operations.”
